Aamir Khan leaves Subhash Kapoor's upcoming directorial 'Mogul'


Aamir Khan has stepped down as the producer of the Gulshan Kumar biopic 'Mogul', due to allegations of sexual misconduct against the director of the film Subhash Kapoor. Without naming the filmmaker or the project, a statement released by Aamir and his wife Kiran Rao on Wednesday said, "At Aamir Khan Productions we have always had a zero-tolerance policy towards sexual misconduct and predatory behaviour of any kind... Two weeks ago, when traumatic #MeToo stories began emerging, it was brought to our attention that someone we were about to begin work with has been accused of sexual misconduct."

The statement added that the case is sub judice and the court is yet to deliver its judgment. "Without casting any aspersions on anyone involved in this case, and without coming to any conclusions about these specific allegations, we have decided to step away from this film," it read.
Later, Subhash responded to Aamir's statement. He said, "I understand and respect Aamir khan's and Kiran Rao's decision. Since matter is subjudice, i intend to prove my innocence in the court of law. But I do want to raise a question - is secretly filming a crying woman without her consent and knowledge and uploading it on social media not harassment or abuse? Or is it fine if she is related to someone who is "allegedly accused"of a mis conduct. If your answer is latter then for me it's nothing less then a khaap panchayat mentality."
